Yankees | Mark Teixeira unlikely for weekend

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:37:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (back) is unlikely to play during the team's weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays, manager Joe Girardi said Friday, July 25. He might be able to return Monday, July 28, on the road against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is a risky play for the upcoming scoring period, and if he is unable to prove his health sometime this weekend (which sounds unlikely), keep him reserved in the upcoming week. He still could land on the 15-day disabled list, creating a huge hole in your lineup.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira DL trip possible

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) may require a DL stint, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Tex's up-and-down season seems to have hit another valley. Brian McCann may line up at first base for the duration, especially with INF/OF Kelly Johnson (groin) on the disabled list. It'd be good for McCann's value to play more frequently and not behind the plate.

Yankees | Brian McCann adjusting to first base

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:02:47 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is adjusting to playing first base. He's lined up there the last two games as Mark Teixeira (lat) remains sidelined. McCann said he has enjoyed the physical break from catching.

Fantasy Tip: He's heating up at the plate, too, so the break from crouching and his ability to stay in the lineup make for a fine combo of positive fantasy developments.
